In 32 caliber it’s a 6 shot, only 5 in 38.

3rd Model only means the 3rd variation of that particular model. S&W made numerous different models using the term “3rd Model”. The .38 Double Action 3rd Model is only one of them.

Thank you very much. I was thinking 1962. Only needed because I want to pass it on to someone who was born on that date.

Serial number 125000 was in 1957 and 295000 was in 1962. The book does not narrow down any further. It is possible 269000 was in 62 since no ones knows how many J frames they made each of those years. The only way to get any closer would be to pay for a “letter” from S&W which would give you the date it was shipped and where it was shipped to.
